We’re in the midst a heatwave in Melbourne this week and it’s all anyone can talk about. The temperature has topped more than 40°C consecutively for four days (that’s more than 100°F for my northern hemisphere peeps) and everyone is losing their tiny minds over it! People are hot, sweaty and cranky but I have a delicious recipe for a yummy salad that may turn those frowns upside down.
I’ve been inspired to make more salads for lunch by Anna over at Colour Me Anna and her #jansaladaday eating challenge on Instagram and I think I’ve hit the jackpot with this one! It’s only a handful of ingredients but it’s super tasty and easy to make. Perfect to eat in this weather we’ve been having. I think the secret to it is the feta. Feta truly makes everything taste 100% better.
Please try this recipe and let me know what you think, I honestly can’t get enough of it! Hope you’re all staying cool, and for those going through winter I’m a little jealous of you right about now (only a little though, I’d much prefer a heatwave to snow, brrr)
